My partner and I went to see this hotel as a possible wedding venue. We have read some good things about it so we were quite disappointed in the end. To be fair, the hotel itself is beautiful, set in beautiful grounds. I've seen quite a few grounds at wedding venues in cheshire and these really are up there with the best. The terrace area is simply stunning. However, as a wedding venue, it was a thumbs down for me. To begin with, I was really annoyed by the poor customer service as we were only told when we got there that we wouldn't be able to see the main room for the wedding and disco because somebody was having a 60th birthday there. I pointed out to the general manger than if they had told us this we would have arranged another date. I noticed he only apologised for this massive oversight when I brought it up! He suggested another 50minute journey to come to visit them a second time but as you can imagine, I was already thinking that this wasn't likely! Anyway, I probably could have got over that if it suited our needs in other ways but the room layout was absolutely rubbish for weddings. The main reception area is a lovely oak pannelled room as you can see from the brochure but it's small for weddings. We are looking at numbers of about 65 and he said with round tables, we would have to have two tables outside the room (albeit with doors opening on to it). The room can fit more with rows of square tables but I still thought it was small. Outside the room is a lounge area and the manager said that the tables out there would be removed later in the evening so some of your guests would no longer have their own table. Then, across from that room was the room of the civil ceremony and that's where the manager said most people have the dance floor as the other rooms are too small for a dance floor really. So, a dance floor two rooms away and a bar in a different room again. Basically, I want to keep my guests together and I think this would end up feeling very disjointed. That's just my opinion though of course so if you can handle the less than ideal layout, this would be a stunning location for a wedding. Oh, and the customer service needs a bit of work too.
